I ventured into the kitchen in search of something sweet. Felt uninspired so thought I’d bake. Didn’t fancy making anything too extravagant, so I thought I’d go for quick and easy. Rock cakes! (More in the look than the taste).
They are really easy to make. What’s even better is they’re quick so you don’t have to wait long to get your munch on!
All you need…
self raising flour
vanilla essence (optional)
and the patience to wait about 25mins once their in the oven 😉
(makes approx 8)
no set measurements. The amount you put in depends how many you want to eat!
pre heat the oven to about 180 degrees
pour approx 5 or 6 large handfuls of flour into a bowl
add approx 3-4 tbsp of sugar
add approx 10-15g of butter (enough to mix with the flour to make a breadcrumb texture. Add more if necessary)
using your hands mix/crumble the butter, flour and sugar
add a couple of handfuls of raisins
using a wooden spoon, mix into the crumble
add approx 1/2 cup of milk and mix until you get a dough like consistency (add bit by bit and make sure the mixture isn’t too sticky. (If it is you can add a touch more flour)
using your hands grab small amounts of the dough (around the size of a golf ball) and place on a baking tray
sprinkle a pinch of sugar on top of each cake then put in the centre of your oven to bake for approx 25 mins
set your timer and boil the kettle. Before you know it your yummy cakes are ready to eat with a lovely cuppa (nom nom)
